  • Step out of the comfort zone

    Published 19/06/23, by Teresa Ingram

    Continuing a recent theme, I thought I would write this week about another hidden gem (though this one is not necessarily Pilgrims’ specific), which is the teacher's perk of getting to go on residential trips.

  • Another hidden gem

    Published 09/06/23, by Angela Slater

    I wrote a few weeks back about how one of the hidden joys of being at Pilgrims’ was getting to sing hymns every week. [There was one on Monday that I really didn’t know; I was a bit lost! Still, what you don’t know today often becomes something you love next week].

  • The Engine Room

    Published 24/03/23, by Angela Slater

    The end of term is upon us; and what a term!  The school has been a buzzy and busy place, but perhaps even more so than usual. It has definitely lived up to my description as the 'Engine Room' of the year.

  • Taking mental health seriously

    Published 17/03/23, by Angela Slater

    I’m sure some may tire of me recommending sports documentaries (that is not all I watch – honest!), but I want to start this week reflecting a little on Ben Stokes: Phoenix from the Ashes, which can be seen on Amazon.

  • Why don't you...?

    Published 10/03/23, by Angela Slater

    I have completed my one-to-one appointments with Year 5 parents to discuss future schools; it has been fascinating, and I love these meetings.

  • How do you define success?

    Published 03/03/23, by Angela Slater

    After the completion of the inspection last week, I felt the need for a bit of a break, so I took some time last weekend to get stuck into a Netflix series that I have been very keen to watch: Full Swing.  This is a brilliant documentary following players on the golf PGA tour during 2022; I gorged myself on four episodes in just a little over 24 hours!
